David de Gea – United’s best player – and comfortably, too. The Spaniard made three sublime saves to preserve his clean sheet and ensure victory. 8/10
Diogo Dalot – Tried to get forward and work the ball into the box. He did leave acres of space in behind for the opponents, though. 6/10
Victor Lindelof – Endured a tough one-on-one battle with Teemu Pukki, but did just about enough. Had to be subbed off with a chest issue. We hope he’s okay. 5/10
Harry Maguire – Sporting a black eye, our captain put in a warrior-like performance – particularly when dealing with the aerial threat. 7/10
Alex Telles – Steady. Sometimes you felt like he lacks a little bit of technical quality but overall, he did his job well. 6/10
Scott McTominay – Helped the back four out on numerous occasions. Tried to keep the ball moving in the right direction. 6/10
Fred – Worked as tirelessly as ever. Won some big tackles too. 6/10
Bruno Fernandes – Uncharacteristically poor and very sloppy in possession. It’s unlike Bruno but he needs time to adapt to this new system. 3/10
Jadon Sancho – Showed flashes of his quality but didn’t really threaten enough. Probably didn’t deserve to be subbed off first, either. 5/10
Marcus Rashford – Really bad. Made the wrong decision pretty much every time he had the ball at his feet and ran down far too many blind alleys. 2/10
Cristiano Ronaldo – The match-winner. Probably should’ve scored earlier on when one-on-one with Krul, but tucked away his penalty nicely. 6/10
Mason Greenwood – Didn’t really change the game.
Eric Bailly – Made one or two blocks.
Donny van de Beek – Not enough time to mark.
